Hi, I would like to know whether St. Bernard breed is a fine keep for Chennai's climate conditions.?

Hi, I would like to know whether St. Bernard breed is a fine keep for Chennai's climate conditions. We would like to have a pup. Our family has 5 adults and 1 child (age 2). We were thinking of Lab Dog but it sheds too much hair. I am not much aware of Golden Retriever, but they look cute. We want to go for some nice cuddly faithful alert non-scary dog which would grow to be a part of all of us. Please suggest dogs

I would not recommend you to have a Saint Bernard in chennai... its a hot and humid place and could be a very uncomfortable for the breed... these dogs are mend to be live in snow... they are design for cold weather... keeping him in a normal temperature place is okay but chennai is not good at all...

and all dogs are cute and cuddly... no dogs are unfaithful... it all depends on how you keep and discipline your dog and how your dog behaves...

and as you said one child is there and that is only 2 so i would say its not a good plan to have a dog right now... get a dog later...

Dear Gopal, do you think a German Spitz with its heavy coat is suitable for the plains of Uttar Pradesh where it gets as hot in summer as 41 degree C with minimum (night) an uncomfortable 30 degree C though the winters are cold? Rainy season is mostly uncomfortably warm and humid up to 90% or more. Would you recommend trimming of its coat during begining of summer (say) April?

German Spitz are very common in Bihar and I guess UP climate is no different from Bihar. you have to be careful during summer like the dog should get fair amount of water and should not be left outside and second like i would like to mark that the Spitz will shed a bit more due to weather. rest is okay. Trimming can be done Its a good idea but don't let the dog out in the sun during summer

st bernard can be grown in chennai or in any climate...only when u can have perfect care...you should arrange it with a cooler to stay..mostly you should have patience to tolerate such huge breeds...more time you spend on dog more beautiful it grows..feeding,grooming everything matters...and mostly if you dont socialize this breeds they could be envy to strangers..
so better choose a labrador...or a great dane
